Upcoming Event- Swinging and Flowing: Inclusion & Diversity in The Age of Big Data
Posted by socialapplabmember
AT&T claims that it covers 97% of all Americans. What they fail to mention is that their coverage comes at a cost- often time, a cost that bars many groups of our society from access. Even those who are able to front the cost of access are still not free. We must stop, and take a moment to realize that we are subjects to new power structures. These new power structures limit access to paths of success. Only through understanding and dissecting them, can we break free from the structural boundaries they create.
Come join our conference to discuss these issues from social, analytical and professional perspectives.
In the frame of digital media, we consider: where are the boundaries of participation? What are the conditions? and ultimately, what are the opportunities?
